Hartford – The month of May is “Community Action Month” and to help commemorate this occasion, the Community Renewal Team (CRT) is hosting a free “Community Resource Fair” on Thursday, May 27, 2021 (from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm) at its main offices in Hartford (located at 555 Windsor St.).

“Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact CRT and our network has had on individuals and families throughout our service area,” said Lena Rodriguez, President and CEO of CRT. “Last year alone, we served 20,981 households and over 44,000 individuals throughout Hartford County and Middlesex County. And the national Community Action Network helped more than 15 million across the country with immediately needed services such as shelter and food, as well as long-term solutions like education and job placement.”
